About the Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Crawley Wellbeing as a Wellbeing Advisor (Alcohol). This role provides one to one support to Crawley residents concerned about how much alcohol they are drinking.  

Referred by health professionals, wellbeing staff or by self-referral you will meet with customers via phone conversations, virtual calls or face to face appointments. You will deliver 2-8 sessions (training will be given) aimed at supporting someone to understand and change their alcohol related behaviour and you will also be signposting them to a range of services for further assistance.

You will be involved with the marketing and promotion of the service and will develop good relationships with key partners.  Throughout the year Public Health run a number of alcohol awareness campaigns and you will advertise and promote these through local media and outreach events.

You will be competent using Microsoft packages including: MS Teams, MS Excel and Word, inputting and collating data and you will support the Senior Wellbeing Officer in writing regular reports.

You will be passionate about the health and wellbeing of others, and an effective communicator who knows when it is more important to listen than to speak.  You are committed to supporting someone through their journey to a healthier, happier lifestyle, knowing how important it is for people to find their own way to achieve their goals.  You will have an aptitude and willingness to learn a number of wellbeing initiatives and will work independently, structuring your own day whilst being there to support and work with the team.
